Chapter synopsis: Sorghum was once a major crop in dry regions. However, its production area has decreased drastically, especially in Asia. In order to revitalize sorghum production, we must reorient sorghum research in the contexts of present and future demands, and resolve specific production constraints, thereby improving productivity. This chapter analyses the sorghum production system in Asia, comparing it to the global situation and identifying important constraints. It then reviews potential measures to improve sorghum cultivation in Asia, including genetic improvement, improved processing technologies, marketing strategies and policy measures.
